The Air Plus is a larger surfboard-style hull for bigger riders, the Buddy a short, wide boogie board-style hull for children, and the extra large Shuttle a long, wide hull. You can expect different rides and performance specs out of each.

It combines the advantages of inflatable design: easier transportation and storage. The Air packs down into a two-piece package that slides easily in a car trunk – no roof racks or trailers needed.

An electric jet drive with its motor, battery pack and other components are collapsible piece of hardware, The Air drive is built into a separate module, which secures to the hull on the beach and removes during transport. The jet drive has a 15-hp motor, that provides 40 minutes of power before the lithium battery needs a recharge, which takes between one and two hours.

Air’s top speed is 47 km/h, which company has declared the world’s fastest electric jet surfboards. The rider drives the Air with a wireless handheld controller.
